According to reports, advisers of the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex are currently working on a bespoke role that would have the royal couple combining Commonwealth and charity work together with the promotion of Britain.
The reports also indicate that David Manning, who was once an ambassador to the US and also Lord Geidt, a one-time private secretary to the Queen, have come up with the international plans.
However, they are yet to make a decision as to where they would likely be based, and details about that won’t be out till 2020.
Pending the time when the decision would be made on their plans, the couple would still have the opportunity to take out time to settle down into their new Frogmore Cottage after the birth of their first child.
The Dutchess is expected to give birth any moment from now, but no one would get to see the baby on the first day of birth, and that’s reportedly a break from the general royal tradition.
While speaking about their likely relocation plans, a media outlet quoted a palace insider who said the role would go on for 2 to 3 years adding that the discussions are still at their early stage.
However, their plan is to get a new mode of utilizing the soft power abilities they have, and the odds are high that it would be in Africa. Another source told a news agency that there are different discussions going on in palace circles concerning the matter. They are reportedly looking for ways to harness their productivity.
